Community Engagement & Special Events
The Community Engagement Department strives to inspire Jewish journeys and serve as a catalyst for families in Northern Virginia to seek out deeper participation in Jewish life. Programs are designed to emphasize Jewish culture, identity and values to people of all ages and backgrounds.
Often these programs are in partnership with area synagogues and Jewish agencies, including The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.

Mitzvah Program (ongoing)
Chair: Gail Gurin
The JCCNV Mitzvah Program provides support to those in need in our community. Please join fellow JCCNV members, friends, and staff, as we volunteer on a number of social action projects, including making casseroles for the homeless, serving meals to those in need, packing food boxes at an emergency food warehouse, visiting Jewish residents in retirement homes and donating food for Thanksgiving baskets.
If you would like to volunteer or would like more information about the program, please contact Laurie Albert.
